The Denver Broncos have selected Fresno State guard Netane Muti in the sixth round of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Netane Muti is a 6’3”, 315 pound offensive lineman who played his college ball at Fresno State. Analysts call Muti a “top 50 pick” if it weren’t for his injury history and even Pro Football Focus ranked him as their number one interior offensive lineman in the draft, so there is some big-time talent here. He’s very strong too as he put up 44 reps at the NFL Scouting Combine as well.

Here is what The Athletic’s Dane Brugler had to say about new Broncos guard Netane Muti.

SUMMARY: A three-year starter at Fresno State, Muti started at left guard in offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb’s scheme. The durability issues and lack of tangible football experience are legitimate concerns, learning the sport in high school and then suffering three separate season-ending injuries over the last four years. Muti is a combative blocker and owns the core power and torque to displace defenders, flashing the violence in his hands to thud his target. He tends to get grabby with his hands and needs to streamline his technique because he won’t be able to simply overpower his opponents at the next level. Overall, Muti has NFL-starting talent and is worthy of top-50 draft consideration on ability alone, but his injury history and concerns about reliability make it tough to accurately predict his draft value and NFL future.

Muti will provide depth behind the Broncos guards of Dalton Risner and Graham Glasgow while also being developed by Hall of Fame offensive line coach Mike Munchak.
